Overview

This two-day workshop provides participants with best practices, useful tools, and guidance to manage subawards. With many NGOs implementing USAID-funded projects with a subaward component, development practitioners working on these projects must understand the nuances in roles and responsibilities while complying with donor rules and regulations and achieving program objectives. If you are responsible for implementing, managing, and monitoring subawards, this participatory-style workshop will support you as you address the day-to-day challenges in administering such assistance.  

Note: Participants at the workshop will earn 15.6 CPE credits and receive a certificate of attendance. The course level is Basic. The delivery method of this program is Group Live and the Field of Study is Specialized Knowledge.
